You can surf the web and Google Chrome will not save a record of the pages that you have visited when you browse in incognito mode. To do this, you need to open an incognito window on your laptop or Chromebook, once the window is open you can browse without a record of your activity. Anything that you download however will be saved to your downloads folder. 

Open an incognito Window (keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+N)

  • Open your Chrome browser
  • Tap the Menu in the top left of your browser (box with three lines)
  • Choose New Incognito window
